I think I could eat avocados every day. I mean for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In fact, I want one right now. Wouldn't it be nice to have an avocado tree?
Not happening in this part of the country - ha!
Thankfully, there are plenty of avocados to be found at the local market. And avocados taste even better when they are paired with a good tomato. We really love the Campari tomatoes, which are hothouse tomatoes that seem to have an amazing flavor year-round.
This is how easy this salad is:
Peel your cucumber, and chop it up. Cut your avocado in half, remove the pit, and then score it as shown in the photo, then scoop the flesh out with a spoon. For the tomato, wash and dry, then chop it up.
Place everything into a bowl and top with lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and you are ready to eat!

Oh, yes, this is going to be my lunch tomorrow. Maybe I will add a smidgen of red onion tho. Thanks for sharing. Pinned it!
Pat, red onion sounds wonderful!

This looks crazy amazing. I'm right there with you on the avocados every day, every meal train. I think this would be the perfect lunch
Thanks, Kelly! I'm out of cucumbers at the moment or I'd be making another batch just about now..
